Abstract

ProMigra (Project for the Promotion of the Rights of Migrants) is a university extension linked to the University of São Paulo that started its activities in 2015. In this chapter, the authors discuss a term that has been constantly linked to the contemporary reality of the migrant subject: entrepreneurship. To achieve this purpose, they gather the framework of experiences that ProMigra has accumulated over the last years, especially those linked to professional training and the viability of income generation of migrants. While on the one hand it's important to recognize the relevance of promoting labor opportunities for migrants, on the other hand it's necessary to also consider that the entrepreneurship discourse should be employed with caution, so that it doesn't cover up the ineffectiveness of public institutions and doesn't exempt them from social responsibility to guarantee the basic rights of socially vulnerable migrants. Hopefully, the proposed discussion will contribute to the deconstruction of problematic ideas linked to this entrepreneurial narrative.
